Captain Steve Rodger is a native to Key West, Florida, a true Conch and a rare commodity these days. Raised on the waters surrounding the Keys, Steve has a lifetime of fishing and diving experience. He started commercial fishing on his own at the age of 16, which is the youngest allowable age to obtain a COMMERCIAL SALTWATER PRODUCTS LICENSE. From there, Steve learned more about the Florida Keys both above and below the water than most people could in a lifetime. Steve continues to learn today through his charter service, Spear One Charters in Key West, and through his personal diving and spearfishing adventures. Steve is one of the rare few who are as comfortable below the water as above.
Steve is equally accomplished above and below the water. As a top charter guide, his time is coveted by celebrities and long time customers for his tournament winning techniques and his fantastic attitude towards fishing and life. Many know Steve as a shark fishing expert due to his top 2 performances in ESPN2’s Madfin Shark Series, however, he proves daily that he is a top Captain for any specie. Under water, Steve tests the limits of his body and equipment by trying to hunt large fish in the open Ocean. His biggest fish to spear and subdue thus far is a Yellowfin Tuna that weighed over 200 pounds!
